Costs range from $12-$25 per student, depending on the activity chosen (the equipment, set up time and number of staff required varies, so we need to charge accordingly). While we understand there are cheaper incursions around, our workshops provide a deep level of hands-on involvement for every student and access to a range of specialist equipment together with technical and pedagogical leadership to make every class a success. We have had excellent feedback over the past 2 years with teachers commenting on how much content we cover in such an engaging way, and students loving our workshops. We believe they are exceptionally good value for money.

Timing & logistics
All incursions are based on a 90 minute session with a class of up to 29 students. We run 2-3 sessions per day. We can run 2 x 90min session and a shortened 60min session to fit 3 sessions in one day if required. All sessions on the same day must be the same workshop activity. Most schools book multiple days to cover many classes in the same year level.
Golden Gear supplies all equipment required. We need access to a floorspace where we can make some noise without interrupting others, and where we will not be interrupted by others. We need one hour for set up and 30 minutes for pack up at the end of the day.
Do we have insurance, working with children checks and level 2 first aid for childcare workers?
Do we service rural Victoria?
Yes. We like a drive in the country – up to about an hour and a half from the northern suburbs. Please be aware that we may need to add a small surcharge for travel. For longer bookings and/or further away, we are happy to discuss travel and accommodation.
